Pray for our American Heroes

Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.

Psalm 144: 1,2

TOPICS: Prayer; Religion & Culture; Religion & Politics
KEYWORDS: lapierre; military; pray
Father God, we are gathered in a spirit of unity today seeking Your face. Apart from and without You, there is no life, no joy, no truth, no peace. In You alone we receive strength, protection and victory. How wonderful You are and how grateful we are that You have invited us to come boldly to You to receive!

We pray today for our military serving us either in safety or harm’s way today. As the psalmist prayed, teach their hands to war and their fingers to fight. No matter what their function, show them how to perform in excellence. We appreciate the skills and abilities that You have given each one for our service. We give You thanks for each one that You have called. You are our goodness and our fortress. You are our high tower, our deliverer and our shield and it is in You alone that we trust. Manifest Yourself to each member of our military in those mighty ways, Sir.


We also pray today for Wayne LaPierre for his tireless work in saving our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Strengthen and bless him in this good work. As we prayed for our military, teach his hands to war and his fingers to fight against those that are attempting to steal this right. We ask You, Father, to provide whatever financial or physical assistance he needs in this battle. Teach him and his organization to be efficient in their use of human and financial resources. Give them favor among our elected officials and general public to be a success at what they are doing. If he does not know Jesus as his Lord, we pray that You would send a laborer into that harvest and enlighten the eyes of his understanding to be able to receive Him.

Call enough intercessors to accomplish Your mission among us. Thank You today for answering our prayers, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

“I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love.”
- Hosea 11:4

Our heavenly Father often draws us with the cords of love; but ah! how
backward we are to run towards him! How slowly do we respond to his gentle
impulses! He draws us to exercise a more simple faith in him; but we have
not yet attained to Abraham’s confidence; we do not leave our worldly
cares with God, but, like Martha, we cumber ourselves with much serving.
Our meagre faith brings leanness into our souls; we do not open our mouths
wide, though God has promised to fill them. Does he not this evening draw
us to trust him? Can we not hear him say, “Come, my child, and trust me.
The veil is rent; enter into my presence, and approach boldly to the
throne of my grace. I am worthy of thy fullest confidence, cast thy cares
on me. Shake thyself from the dust of thy cares, and put on thy beautiful
garments of joy.” But, alas! though called with tones of love to the
blessed exercise of this comforting grace, we will not come. At another
time he draws us to closer communion with himself. We have been sitting on
the doorstep of God’s house, and he bids us advance into the banqueting
hall and sup with him, but we decline the honour. There are secret rooms
not yet opened to us; Jesus invites us to enter them, but we hold back.
Shame on our cold hearts! We are but poor lovers of our sweet Lord Jesus,
not fit to be his servants, much less to be his brides, and yet he hath
exalted us to be bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh, married to him
by a glorious marriage-covenant. Herein is love! But it is love which
takes no denial.
If we obey not the gentle drawings of his love, he will send affliction
to drive us into closer intimacy with himself.
Have us nearer he will.
What foolish children we are to refuse those bands of love, and so bring
upon our backs that scourge of small cords, which Jesus knows how to use!
